Former NMSU Chancellor Dr. Garrey Carruthers

Commentary: New Mexico voters have an unprecedented chance to send an important message this November that New Mexico takes corruption seriously and will hold government officials, candidates, and contractors accountable when they cross ethical boundaries and violate the law.  As former statewide elected officials, we wince every time we see the state tarnished by poor national rankings for good government and ethics, and worry that the perception of corruption is costing us business and opportunities, discouraging civic participation and decreasing voter turnout.  New Mexico is one of only six states that does not have a statewide ethics commission.

Las Cruces Should Adopt Electric Vehicles, Part II

Oct 9, 2018

Commentary: The 2018 National Drive Electric Week (#NDEW2018) took place during September 8-16, 2018. There were 322 events in various cities in the USA and Canada. Las Cruces was on the map of events, with a workshop held at the Southwest Environmental Center. September 8, 2018, was the day chosen for that event, because it coincided with nationwide actions in preparation for the Global Climate Action Summit (#GCAS2018) on September 12-14, 2018 in San Francisco, CA.

Examining The Replacement For NAFTA

Oct 8, 2018

Commentary: And then there were three again. On September 30, Canada and the U.S. announced that they had come to an agreement on the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). On August 27, the U.S. and Mexico announced that they had come to terms on their end of the renegotiations, and it was feared that Canada would not join, thereby rendering NAFTA a two-nation agreement. The U.S. and Mexico agreed on a renewable 16-year agreement that will be reviewed in six-year increments. North American content in vehicles produced in the NAFTA region was raised from 62.5 percent to 75 percent. The agreed-upon points also include a provision that 45 percent of the content of pickup trucks and 40 percent of the content of light trucks would be built by employees earning more than $16 per hour.

Commentary:  In 1946, after 14 years of Democratic control of both the Executive and Legislative branches of the federal government, Republicans campaigned on the two-word slogan “had enough?”  Over seventy years later, the slogan seems odd because it came after Democratic government led the recovery from the Republican-induced Great Depression and achieved victory on two fronts, Europe and Asia, in the Second World War.  But the Greatest Generation got tired of sacrifices for the good of the country.  Republicans succeeded in winning control of Congress for the next two years, 1947-1949.
